I had some time on my last day on PEI, so I decided a drive out to the Point Prim lighthouse would be a perfect way to spend a couple of hours. The site where the lighthouse stands is small, but there’s a great little...More

It was neat to see a circular, brick lighthouse as the majority are wood. The setting is set up nice with the lobster traps for decor!

After coming from Nova Scotia on the ferry we stopped off at the lighthouse on our way to Charlottetown. A beautiful spot and this historic lighthouse is worth the drive. I believe that in a few weeks it is open for tours inside.

This lighthouse was cool to visit! The tide was out at the time we went and we were able to walk around on the stones. It was neat to discover sea creatures that were hiding in the pools of water and under rocks!

We decided to venture out even though the site was technically closed. We enjoyed it and can imagine on a nice summer day it would be spectaclular. A beautiful well kept lighthouse. The road out was not too fantastic.

A pretty drive through the countryside and you arrive st the tip of Point Prim. The lighthouse was the first to be built on PEI more than 150 years ago. Good information panels explain the history of the construction and its significance to Confederation.
